Gili Meno Drone view

gili meno drone

There is a lake on the Island of Gili Meno where a lot of birds breed. The lake is not really a spot to swim but amazing to watch the sunset from a boat dock. From the perspective of the drone it looks like the sea and the lake will connect on high tide, which is not really the case.

The Gili Meno Vlog

How is life on a small island like Gili Meno? we spend a couple of days exploring all corners of this island. Some people live there but mostly tourists visit this island on a day trip on a boat from Gili Trawangan.


Indonesia has so much to offer. Explore beautiful layers of rice fields. Visit detail-rich temples or mosques and learn about the Indonesian culture. Drive along stunning landscapes. Hike up a volcano and enjoy the sunrise at the edge of a crater. Grab a board and ride one of those perfectly shaped waves. Eat through Indonesia diverse kitchens. Countless things to do and to see. this is Indonesia.

Imagine a giant Chicken Church in the middle of a jungle? this is where our adventure led to. It is called Bukit Rhema or gereja ayam in Indonesian. I could not believe my eyes. A giant chicken church made of concrete and steel. This huge chicken is sitting in the middle of a jungle, overlooking the landscape.

Visiting a tofu factory in Indonesia

This is how tofu is produced in Indonesia. From importing the doy beans to forming a tofu block. We learned about the production process in a factory in Magelang Indonesia.

Do you like tofu?

You might ask yourself what is tofu made from? We have been curious too and decided to visit a local tofu factory. We initially traveled to the area of Magelang to visit the Borobodur temple but afterwards we decided to learn more about the local economy. This is how they produce the tofu in Indonesia. They showed us the whole process, from importing the soy beans to pressing the blocks and selling it to the market. Some machines are interestingly improvised and some processes are well thought out. It was a very interesting visit, to see how the soy beans goes through the different process until it becomes a well shaped tofu block.

soy beans

Soy beans imported from the US. They explained us that there is not enough production capacity to get enough soy beans from the local farmers.

tofu oven

the oven is about to be heated. The pan on top of the oven is to simultaneously heat up the water and cool down the escaping heat, to protect the roof from burning.

tofu sieve

The sieve is prepared. The wooden part of the sieve is hand made and serves its purpose perfectly.

soy bean squeezer

The soy beans have been in water for more than 4 hours. The soaked up soy beans are thrown in to this squeezer to get the liquid soy “milk” out of the beans.

The liquid milk is sieved.

Slurping some soy milk in the Indonesian tofu factory. The infrastructure is basic and some things are improvised. I was a great experience to visit this family business tofu factory.

Yoga with a view

yoga lombok

A house on the hillls of Lombok with the most impressive Yoga studio! Woke up early and drove all the way up to the Ashtari Yoga studio. It is a platform with a view of Lombok’s coast line. The rising sun was shining on this beautiful landscape and illuminated the studio with warm bright morning light.

The Tegalalang Vlog

in this video blog we explored the famous Tegalalang rice terrace. back in the days it was simply used to farm rice. Nowadays it is mainly a tourist spot. but why? because the layers of the rice fields are very aesthetic! The terrace are close to Ubud in Bali, Indonesia.

Beauty of a boat wreck

boat wreck

Used to be a boat. all things age. now its a wreck. But a beautiful one in my opinion. the color, the shape and its dramaturgy how it is lying there makes it beautiful. Accept the passage of time and discover the beauty of it. It happens anyway.

That’s right, this is how a pool drone pilot looks like. Straw hat, sunglasses and the controller firmly in the hands with the buttons loose and ready to push when needed.

flying pool
pool dive

Never grow up, it’s a trap!

We stayed in this amata borobudur resort close to the famous Borobodur temple. We had this pool for ourselves. Maybe because it was off season or a lot of people just visit the temple and leave again. Anyways is can recommend you to stay couple of days and explore the area … And of course enjoy a dip in the pool!

The Amata Drone Vlog

It was a day without plans. We have realized that there are no other guests staying at our hotel. So we decided to enjoy the hotel and its infrastructure to the fullest. A bit of drone flying practice. Jumping and diving into the pool and splashing as high as possible. I mean there were no other guests. So it was kind of like our private hotel. We have stayed at the Amata Borobodur resort (linked down in the description) close to the Borobodur temple, in Yogyakarta, on a island called Jawa in Indonesia. After this day we packed our stuff and headed back to Yogyakarta, on the way we stopped at some pretty interesting sights, vlogs soon to come.
